valentine cards are here

Remember Valentine's Day in elementary school?.... ahh, those were the days. My mom made me write one to everyone in the class... even if I thought a few of the boys were "icky". As a kid, it was such a dilemma to find the right little card in the punch-out Valentine's book that just said "Happy Valentine's Day" without giving off the message of "I like you". They should have made one that said... "Happy Valentine's, classmate. My mom made me send this."

Well... on a related note...I have brought back some card designs in time for Valentine's Day! Two designs available... one with heart and branches and the other with Mr. Squirrel and acorn heart. Both designs are printed on heavy rich archival matte paper with Ultrachrome K3 archival inks... and they are blank inside... so you can personalize your message as love-dovey, or not as lovey-dovey as you like. Check them out in the etsy shop here.

Ha ha! I was always worried about my valentines being too lovey too! It's funny how serious those things are as a kid.

Aloquin said...

I love the cards... do you make ACEOs at all? Also, YOU should make that V Card that says "Happy Valentine's Day, Classmate. My Mom made me send this". That would be a hoot!

Hey Valerie, those are really cute cards :)

I love Almost Precious' comment, you will be having fun making hand made cards with your little one, don't make them send to the "Ickies"

Have a wonderful Day, regards, T.

Very cute designs! I totally agree about Valentines back in the day. Heaven forbid we pass things out that even hinted at love to the boys who pulled our pigtails ;)
